With a little over three weeks to go until competitive football returns to Firhill Stadium, the club have been working on preparations for the upcoming season as we hope to welcome supporters into our stands once again.
While we can’t yet confirm what numbers of supporters we will be able to welcome back to Firhill for our opening competitive matches of the new season, what we do know is that your Firhill experience will be a little bit different.
Government guidelines surrounding both social distancing and restrictions on attendance at sporting events currently remain in place. We have been working on a plan that will allow us to accommodate as many Thistle fans as possible while following this guidance.
We would encourage all Thistle supporters that haven’t already taken the opportunity to do so, to inform the club of the fellow season ticket holders, who form part of their “social bubble”, that is the members of their extended family group that they intend to attend games with.
Firhill can accommodate around 500 social bubbles, following the current social distancing guidelines, and we’re keen to accommodate as many of the red and yellow army as we can.
The club currently have a substantial number of season ticket holders detailed in a solitary bubble. This means that these supporters would currently be allocated a single seat with two metres social distancing in each direction. If even a quarter of these supporters were to register a social bubble of two, with another extended family member they go to matches with, we would be able to welcome 500 more Thistle supporters into every game at Firhill, subject to attendance restrictions.
To register a 2021/22 social bubble please email with the details of your bubble including the name and address of each season ticket holder. Please allow up to five working days for a response to your social bubble registration. We have a small administrative team working at Firhill who will be carrying out a number of duties as well as processing social bubble registrations.
Alternatively, you can register your bubble by contacting the ticket office on 0141 579 1971 and selecting option 1.
Season Ticket holders will receive their new physical season ticket cards over the next 14 days as well as information on what to expect on their return to Firhill.
